Wikileaks Update - More Wikileaks Podesta emails (updated)

In a normal election year this coverage would be wall-to-wall.  It would be 24x7.  This is no normal year but Wikileaks is publishing emails that they obtained that are very, very interesting.  Spread the word!!

March 4 Email discussing subpoenas for Clinton's emails
Multiple high level Campaign staff members discuss the Select Committee on Benghazi subpoenas issued for Clinton's emails on March 4, 2015 . Paul Combetta from Platte River Networks used Bleach Bit to wipe Clinton's servers starting March 25, 2015.

Tricking Bernie into actively participating with the DNC Nomination Process
...why not throw Bernie a bone and reduce the super delegates in the future....So if we "give" Bernie this (reduce superdelegates in the future) in the Convention's rules committee, his people will think they've "won" something from the Party Establishment. And it functionally doesn't make any difference anyway. They win. We don't lose. Everyone is happy.
Also this email: "I think this is terribly important especially with people like Bernie's sometimes self-righteous ideologues. We want them to go home happy and enthusiastic in **WORKING THEIR ASSES OFF FOR HILLARY.(emphasis added by OP)"

Manipulation of debate schedule to favor Clinton "to eliminate the possibility of one on one debates; the most likely standard that would achieve this result is to allow any announced candidate who is: 1) a Democrat and, 2) who meets some threshold of viability (1 percent) in either a national or state specific (e.g. Iowa, NH) to participate."
The goals were to: eliminate one on one debate, limit the number of debates, and start them late to minimize the impact of the debates.

HRC Campaign colluded in 2014 to have late primary voting in blue states like CA
In 2014 Mook and Podesta discussed operating strategy to "Keep blue states late" referencing California and Chris Lehane.

DNC and Clinton manipulated the debate schedule
Through internal discussions, we concluded that it was in our interest to: 1) limit the number of debates (and the number in each state); 2) start the debates as late as possible; 3) keep debates out of the busy window between February 1 and February 27, 2016 (Iowa to South Carolina); 4) create a schedule that would allow the later debates to be cancelled if the race is for practical purposes over
Current context: Yesterday in the Washington Post - Source "Do we really need a third presidential debate? What’s the point?"

Campaign acknowledges Clinton is weak on Wall Street compared to Bernie
"If you want to make the question of the campaign, who will best stand up to Wall Street, Sanders is the answer and he'll give you $35 million reasons why." "We need to prove we're ok. Most of all, we don't want this fight."

Donna Brazil current DNC chairperson knew result of the primary in January 2016
"As soon as the nomination is wrapped up, I will be your biggest surrogate."
Podesta "looks forward to working with her to elect the first woman President of the United States."

Clinton Campaign chair says he will coordinate directly with SuperPAC founders David Brock (CTR) and Brad Woodhouse (American Bridge) to attack Rubio

Campaign tried to hide the start date of Clinton's campaign when a reporter questioned the timing of the filming of her launch video
The chain that shows campaign staff discussing how to avoid admitting to reporter when Hillary actually started her campaign, one mentions: This is very important from a legal stand point."

Clinton intentionally avoids the press because they always ask about the "foundation and emails"
Huma: "Can we survive not answering questions from press at message events. Her dinkins speech and immigration message broke through because we didn't take questions. Her community banks message got lost because she answered questions about the foundation and emails."
Podesta: ..."If she thinks we can get to Labor Day without taking press questions, I think that's suicidal."

Clinton suggests mandatory drug screenings for teenagers

AIDS gaffe speech being written and edited

Discussion about foreign funding of the Clinton Foundation Lots of talk about foreign funding of the Clinton Foundation: "If we do go with this foreign gov funding model I will likely tweak the language For the foreign gov't contributions, I'd recommend tweaking the language to say "will continue to receive funding from" rather than "funded by," unless those governments are the only funders of those programs." especially if there are no new foreign contributions.

Discussion of Hillary's stance on TPP

Clinton staff, including campaign manager, scheduling meetings in 2014
